Face masks? Face shields? What should I wear?
Get used to the new normal of wearing masks when out of the house. According to MOH, wearing masks should be the default.
For majority of the population, face shields are not an alternative of face masks. However, face shields can be worn in addition to face masks.
This is because, as Singapore prepares to reopen its economy, there will be greater interaction between people. Hence, wearing a face shield may not suffice as enough protection against foreign droplets.
Those who wear only face shields without any masks will face the same penalty as one who does not wear a mask.
Groups of people who are exempted from wearing a face masks are:
- Children aged below 12
- People with health conditions that may result in medical discomforts when masks are worn for a prolonged period of time
- People speaking in a classroom or lecture-style setting, where there is a fixed distance between people
